not in the long run, you know, how to build something the way steve jobs built apple and how it can be part of a community and go on and on and create jobs and survive and thrive. they look at companies as sort of profit opportunities. we look for companies with hidden or potential value. we go in there, take a stake, try to manage them, and then harvest them for significant profits. now, as president obama has said, in some ways there's nothing wrong with that. newt gingrich called it vulture capital lic capitalism. it's looking at a way of creating jobs, being a stake holder in the community and thinking about the long run. that's not what you're look at. mitt romney was just talking the jargon of someone who does private equity and it's just not -- at the same time, though, in the last year he's told us that he can create jobs and knows the economy better because of his bain cap pal experience. >> but michelle, let me ask you, harvest companies -- buy companies and harvest them, where can you even find the most generous stretch you can, find job creation? >> it is unfortunate imagery and
critical for the governor. let's bring in "news nation" panel. david godfrin, michael and steve daise, conservative radio talk show host. thanks to you for being with me on this friday. steve, let me start with you. these new poll numbers, the head-to-head showing the president now ahead in all three states, north carolina, nevada and new hampshire. new hampshire, of course, romney's home away from home where he has a vacation spot. governor romney's favorables continue to be underwater in all but north carolina now. combine these numbers with what we've seen all week, how worried are republicans? how worried are they that we're approaching the point where it might be time to focus on the congressional races? >> i think people are getting very worried, and i had a pollster doing conservative polling for three decades on my show last night. he said it may be time to go back to a 1996 model of telling the american people, listen, if you're going to re-elect bill clinton, you better have republicans in the congress to make sure to keep him in check. i think it may be a little early for t
't have wealth. that's who he needs to be. >> it sounds like steve is saying let mitt be mitt. is it too late for that? >> well, it's not as though people don't understand who mitt romney is. i'm coming to you from my hometown of madison, wisconsin. wisconsin is a swing state, and wisconsin is the home state of paul ryan, who is also on the republican ticket. the gamble that the republicans made was that he would give them a bump here in the upper midwest, and that has not happened. it's not because paul ryan fails to connect with people or people don't know who mitt romney is. i think we are witnessing a full-scale swing in the pendulum. here in wisconsin scott walker survived the recall effort, but you have tammy baldwin pulling ahead of tommy thompson, a double-digit swing from where he was. she used to be trailing after the democratic convention. president obama is pulling ahead in the upper midwest. i think this may be less about -- this is only mitt romney, and mitt has to be mitt and it's all about mitt. this runs deeper than that. this is a sort of recentering of the american ele

their own medical coverage. so let's debate this. steve moore, senior economics writer for "the wall street journal", dr -- [inaudible] ceo of vital springs technologies and author of "get off the dime: the secret of changing who pays for your health care." and simon rosenberg, president and founder of the new democrat network, also a former clinton campaign adviser. gentlemen, thanks so much for being here. steve, let me start with you. so places like sears and olive garden, red lobster, they're going to give their employees a chunk of change, and supposedly you can go out and buy your own insurance. is this a great idea or a horrible idea? [laughter] >> i actually kind of like the direction here of, basically, saying to workers you can shop around, you can buy the health care plan that really suits your need. so it's a kind of freedom of choice approach. now, the way this ties in, by the way, allison, to obama's health care plan that you were talking about a minute ago is that under obama's plan what you're seeing is a lot of employers are dropping their health care plans that they provid
official and "morning joe" economic analyst steve ratner and nbc news chief affairs correspondent and host of "andrea mitchell reports." >> we have affairs. >> andrea mitchell. and in washington, for "the politico playbook," executive executor jim vandehei. of course, willie, we've got a lot to talk about. let's start really quickly with the refs! >> they're back. >> we've got some breaking news. i've got to tell you, little kay, she's very excited because she's 9 years old. she plays in the soccer league. and the parents have had to ref over the past couple weeks because those guys have gone off to the nfl, but it's taken care of now. >> that's great news. >> drilled down deep. >> a few hours ago, the nfl and referees union announced they have reached a tentative agreement that will end the lockout and bring the original -- the regular officiating crews back to the field. and it starts tonight. quick turnaround. the ravens host the browns in a thursday night game. the deal good through the 2019 season features an increase in average salary for officials. they'll go up to $205,000 a year b
. did you say first time ever? >> the first time ever they're 4-0. >> you mean not even under steve ba bartkowski? >> here's the thing. nobody's going to take them seriously until january. it's going to be so much pressure when the playoffs come around because they haven't delivered under matt ryan. and they could. they could run the table. >> just for the record, you say they haven't delivered in january under matt ryan. they haven't delivered in january since 1966. >> they went to the super bowl in 1998. >> dirty birds. >> and then got killed by the broncos, went out all night partying. >> in fairness. in fairness. >> no, we've had a very sad, sad playoff group, but they looked good. >> they looked very good. and character builder. they had the ball at their own 1. they drove down, got the winning field goal. >> is there a worse team in football than the dolphins? >> the browns. that's the thing. the raiders have gotten blown out a couple of times but they have a win over the steelers which no one can figure out. >> why can't the dolphins turn it around? it's been a rough, rough stre
the truth for us coming up on wednesday night. i'm joined tonight by steve benen, msnbc contributor and writer for the maddow blog. he keeps track of mitt romney's lies in a series call mitt mendacity. great to have you with us tonight, steve. romney's own pollster said last month, we're not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact checkers. so why is romney's debate strategy to fact check the president? i find it interesting. >> that's a good question. i was thinking, on the way over here, how i haven't been in college for a long time, but i remember being a freshman and taking psych 101 and remember learning about something when people identify their most glaring faults and project those faults on to the other people. i'm think this is a great example of that. because mitt romney has demonstrated over the course of several months as one of the most dishonest i've ever seen. so for him to turn around and say he wants to look forward to using the debates to somehow suggest the president has been dishonest, i think that's a classic example of projection. >> you used the word dis
malfunctioned. they got through our defenses and the fact is that as steve hayes has been reporting today in the, in the "weekly standard", they lied about that one too. three days after that attack they said it was a lone, a lone man when we now know it was an attack by al qaeda in the arabian peninsula. said after times square bombing it was a lone man acting alone. we know now it was a taliban attack. they said after the fort hood shooting it was workplace violence. we now know that man was in contact with the american al qaeda cleric running al qaeda in arabian peninsula. these people have a record of downplaying and dismissing terrorist attacks when they have gotten through our defenses repeatedly on their watch. megyn: simon, go ahead. >> all i will say if you look where we are today from when the president came into office almost four years ago, we've seen more movement towards democracy and freedom in the middle east, in his watch, during his watch than we saw in 5,000 years of arab and middle eastern history. we just today signed a massive free-trade agreement with the gulf nations to b

into a statistical dead heat in 2012. congressman steve king held an impressive 33% lead in 2010, is now down to single digits. is this a rejection of their ideas and could lead to the country moving away from this extreme right philosophy in terms of a takeover by politics in washington? >> yes, if as president obama said, because he was right when he said that real power is not here in washington, you don't change washington from the inside, it does mean that people from the outside, it's not just about who gets elected. that's very important. and then people outside of washington have to keep the pressure on their members of congress to hold them accountable for what they said they were going to do. when we've seen people do that over the course of the last couple of years, that's the only time we've actually ever seen congress act that or coming to a fiscal cliff and over a deadline. you know, rev, i like what you're saying. i think we do not fully do our job back in 2010 and understand the tea party. we easily bought into the narrative and i think there was a whole astro turf movement wi

at abc had an extensive post about it. i mentioned, a man who knew steve hayes at the weekly standard has done a good job chronicling this from the beginning. there are more and more media outlets asking these questions and there will continue to be questions as this investigation continues. megyn: you and i are heading off to denver to co-anchor this presidential debate that will be moderated by pbs' jim letterer. is there any chance we get a question on this give up this is the big news the past couple weeks? >> reporter: no. i think the restrictions on jim lehrer are pretty tight. unless a candidate brits up i think it moderator has a responsibility according to what they signed on to to get it back on track to the topic that they were supposed to stay on. so it will be interesting to see if that happens. but it won't be generated by jim hehrer. megyn: unless he goes rogue. >> reporter: if he goes rogue then we have an interesting story. megyn: when you think jim helrer you think -- now don't. see you at 6:00 p.m. on "special report." we got a fox news poll of what likely voters are th

it benefits from industry and from congress. host: let's hear from steve, republican in florida. caller: good morning. thanks for taking my call. you pointed out the guest's article where he states that this agency is going to restore the american dream. you've got to be kidding. that is laughable. it sounds like obama and you did not build it. the american dream has been made by hard-working individual americans. no agency of the federal government can possibly ever restore that. my question is, how can you possibly claim that when it was a pseudo government agency, fannie and freddie, overseen by dodd adn frank, which caused the collapse of the financial system -- dodd and frank, giving loans to people that could never afford to pay them back? guest: i will just say that the idea that fannie and freddie would cause the financial crisis is widely held in some circles. i don't believe it's true. the cause of the financial crisis was the subprime mortgages that were peddled by firms that were not under the supervision of the federal government in any serious way, certainly not fannie and fredd
